"gone the old al carte menu and now a prix fix with only one choice to make, meat or vegtetarian entree. the breaking bread is really three courses of wonderful tastes served family style. the food is environmentally friendly and original and very, very good. there is a fine wine selection. the staff works well together to make the dining experience comfortable and well paced. a fine value and a lovely place to enjoy a relaxing and delicious dinner. we will return!"

"Overly self pretentious. ... clearly a xhef/owner who thinks he is all that...Had a strict and unnecessary policy of seating based on which menu (prixe fixe or a la carte) you chosr, so it's all eother/or for a group...ridiculous!!! Food was average at best.....clearly trying too hard to be hipster cool ...just cook good food and lose the pretense ....not worth the price or the hassle"

"The place was great. Tastefully decorated, not to dark, perfect lightning for an evening out. You could taste freshness in most of the dishes.
Salad, however, was not at all as described in the menu. It looked rushed and was not as tasty add the rest of the dishes. I'm sad to describe it as such, but it was mediocre. Maybe it was a fluke.
Other than that, we had a great experience."

"My husband and I had dinner before a Sunday night show at Yoshi's. The food was wonderful - we especially enjoyed the chef-selected appetizers. Our main course was also delicious. We we go there again as a couple or a small group. We are eager to share it with out of town guests."

"My wife and I had dinner at Haven this past Saturday night and had the pre-fix. Every course put in front of us was amazing! We loved the entire experience. The restaurant is beautiful and the staff were super friendly!!
The new chef is creating such delicious and interesting dishes that we enjoyed it all.
Do come hungry as there is plenty of food, almost too much. I think this might be the best dinning experience we've had in the East Bay. Congrats to the new Chef and the staff at Haven!!!"

"With the new prix fixe menu that starts with Breaking Bread, we enjoyed a fabulous meal of king salmon. The food is delicious and well presented. I highly recommend Haven."

"Remember the Wendy's commercials with the old lady shouting "where's the BEEF?" For $75 a plate on Christmas Eve you should leave full. Tired of all show no go, food looks great in a pic for FB but over priced small food just doesn't get it done. With all the choices at Jack London Square you wont be missing anything if you pass on Haven."

"As usual a delightful evening with great food, service, and atmosphere. It's so fun to learn about new foods that are just amazing in a context that is filled with people that love similar vibe. The servers are very good and also knowledgeable. The staff all seem to love what they are doing. The food is out of this world."

"Food was great, service was ok. My only concern is the price: almost $200 for two people (which I don't mind paying IF the value is there). Small portions are ok, but these ones are, by far... too small."

"Our first dining experience at Haven was good, overall. The only things we didn't like are it took an unusually long time for our main entrees to arrive and they had "given up" our table because we were late for the reservation.
With regard to our reservation, we had a 7:30 reservation and we arrived around 7:40, maybe 7:45, due to traffic. We figured they would hold our table for at least 15 mins, but when we finally did arrive, they told us we had to wait while they reset our table. There were people in the restaurant, but it wasn't packed, by any means. We thought that was weird.
Even though it was our first dining experience, the first courses came out in a timely fashion, if not fairly quickly. However, we were wondering where our entrees were, after some time had passed. Considering the portions were a bit small, we couldn't understand the delay. When the main entrees did arrive, everything tasted wonderful.
Outside of those two issues, the dining experience was good and I would be willing to dine there again. I like they way they serve the courses, geared toward sharing. On this particular evening, they offered two main entrees, the salmon and a ribeye (or some similar beef), I think. So I ordered the salmon and my date ordered the ribeye. The salmon was very good but the ribeye (or similar beef) was excellent. Very flavorful and tasty.
I can recommend Haven with confidence, but if you're dining at Jack London Square, there are a couple of places there I would recommend before Haven.
Merry Christmas and Happy Dining!"

"We really loved our experience at Haven.
The waitstaff was terrific. Pacing of the meal was not optimal (there seemed to be some long gaps in service, which is surprising given that it is a chef's menu with few options). But the dishes were great.
One super interesting thing was the chef's use of spice! In American/California cuisine like this it's unusual to get so much kick from the dishes, but the chef was quite liberal in his use of heat! I like spicy food and really enjoyed it."
